the relationship between the taliban and al-qaeda in afghanistan and depicting the taliban as the kinder, gentler new taliban. she's covered it. she says it's not true. look at the "new york times" today. in pakistan, the taliban gunned down a 14-year-old girl, a 14-year-old girl who was a children right's activist who was an activist for women who wanted to get an education. the taliban went onto a bus near catchy, pakistan, and executed her. we know now in syria that the al-qaeda has infilt rated that opposition movement against the syrian government. so we look at syria, we look at pakistan. we look at afghanistan. we look at iraq. we look at embassy protests in yemen and tunisia and egypt which have allegedly been tied to al-qaeda. so we see a resurgence of al-qaeda, resurgence of taliban that is not consistent with the narrative we've been hearing from the administration. >> steve: the white house wants to get the heck out of afghanistan as soon as possible and if al-qaeda is regenerating, that's not helpful and lara logan from cbs, here she is spilling the beans that americans need to know.
